in the state of florida, would have happened if the election had been september 6th, october 6th or november 6th. this was structural. this was demographic. this had nothing to do with any issue. no auto bailout. no sandy. no any other effects. and so any other excuse that some republicans make is whistling past their grave yards. >> you accept it's more about demographics, more latino voters, up 10%, almost 11%, almost maxing out. a pretty good showing among white voters, about 39, about the levels of the last four or five cycles. >> well, i mean, he dropped a little bit. he had 43% of the -- >> before him. >> yeah, around where gore and kerry were. you know, they were -- the people you mentioned before, david plouffe, jim messina and jim axelrod -- particularly messina and plouffe, i wrote about this, they saw this as a contest between economics and demographics. the economics were going to be a headwind for president obama and the only way to win was focus like a laser beam on four groups. the rest of the campaign was just mood music for them. they were looking at african-americans, hispani

the american people want us to do. that was the very clear message from the election last week. that was message of a letter i received over the weekend. it came from a man in tennessee who began by writing that he didn't vote for me. which is ok. but what he said was, even though he didn't give me his vote, he's giving me his support to move this country forward. and he said the same to his republican representatives in washington. he said that he'll back each of us regardless of party as long as we work together to make life better for all of us. he made it clear that if we don't make enough progress he'll be back in touch. so my hope, he wrote, is that we can make progress in light of personal and party principles, special interest groups and years of business as usual. we've got to work together and put our differences aside. i couldn't say it better myself. that's precisely what i intend to do. with that, let me open it up for your questions. i'm going to start off with ben of a.p. >> thank you, mr. president. can you assure the american people that there have been no brea

it the november surprise. in 90 minutes, president obama will hold his first press conference since re-election and he will be holding it amid circumstances no one could have predicted. just one week after america gave him a second term, at a time of high stakes negotiations over the so-called fiscal cliff, the president will likely face questions about a salacious sex scandal involving the now former cia director. >> does the president see this in general as an unwelcomed distraction at a time when he's just -- was re-elected and has a bunch of priorities in terms of the fiscal cliff and in terms of his cabinet? >> well, i certainly i think wouldn't call it welcome. obviously the, as i said to ben, the information about general petraeus came to him as a surprise. >> not exactly welcome is perhaps an understatement. the resignation of general david petraeus as cia director hangs another question mark over america's intelligence community and foreign pollicy leadership. with petraeus out he could tap john owe brennan to take over at the cia. secretary of state hillary clinton has insisted she wi

're going on two days now since the election with several house races still too close to call. it is not over yet, everyone. good morning. welcome to "early start," everyone. >> nice to have you with us. it is 5:00 a.m. in the east. up first, we're going to start with mother nature. she is showing absolutely no mercy. this morning the northeast is getting rocked again. it is a powerful nor'easter pounding a region already devastated by superstorm sandy. 600,000 people without power for nine days in new york and new jersey. some forced to evacuate or hunker down overnight in the face of 60 mile an hour winds, two to four foot storm surge and a half foot of snow. more than 1,000 flights were canceled in new york and philadelphia. the path train between new jersey and new york is back to limited service under the hudson river after being shut ahead of the storm. penn station in new york was closed for a while last night. but it is back open today. my goodness. we have team coverage of this untimely winter storm. suzanne candiotti is live in new jersey. first, we begin with rob ma
those numbers. as is often said, elections have consequences and the grand bargain if there is one must reflect that. the president has already begun to move beyond the beltway to enlist support meeting today with labor leaders from around the country who describe the talks as very, very positive. >> we're very, cre committed to making sure that the middle class and workers don't end up paying the tab for a party that we didn't get to go to and the president is committed to that as well. >> eliot: joining me now with more on the fiscal cliff negotiations is senator bernie sanders, independent from vermont. senator, many thanks for your time and congratulations on your genuine landslide victory of 71.3% in the great state of vermont. >> thank you. thank you. >> eliot: so how do we turn the exaltation of last week into results? how do we know say there must be a reformation of what had been offered to the republicans last year? >> well, eliot i tell you the wray to do it is very simple. listen to wha
obama will be holding his first news conference in eight months. the first since his re-election. reporters are likely going to be asking about a lot more than the fiscal cliff, as important as that is, be now that the president's national security team is coping with an expanding scandal. congress drilling down on the investigation into benghazi. joining me from the white house, chuck todd, chief white house correspondent, be host of "the daily run down request" and enjoying a front row seat. >> as you point out the hoping statement will be about the fiscal cliff. the whole point of this press conference was about setting, you know, this was their intention, right. about setting sort of the parameters of the public debate where they are on fiscal cliff. but, of course, we haven't questioned him in over eight months. questions about benghazi, questions about the petraeus thing, how did the fbi, is the president pleased with, seems there's a little pattern here of it seems to take a while for certain information to get to the white house a little bit, how -- what is his reaction t
the timing of events unfolding at a lightning pace after the election. >> why would the raid on the ladies' just happen this week? if this investigation had been going on for months? so i think the f.b.i. has a lot of questions to answer. >> former spokesman for general petraeus incysted publicly the affair ended four months ago. fox news learned in the last week of october at a society dinner washington for the elite of the u.s. intelligence community, paula broadwell was openly bragging about "two book ideas she and the general were pursuing. the witness who asked to remain inon-mouse said broadwell was beaming and showing no sign of distress though the f.b.i. interviewed her a month earlier. >> bret: thank you. bad news for a third general. defense secretary leon panett panetta -- [ inaudible ] general spending thousands of dollars on lavish travel and will retire as three-star general, not a four-star. the looming fiscal cliff does not have the sex appeal or intrigue of tangled spy affairs. but if congress returned to session today, it starts out as high as they come. keeping the u.s.
the elevator and the workers get the shaft. that is a whole bunch of bunk. the powerful may steal an election, but they can't steal democracy. >> eliot: one year ago president obama bargained with republicans, offering a so-called grand bargain that cuts spending $10 for every $1 raised in revenue. the question now after the president won a near landslide victory is how to flip those numbers. as is often said, elections have consequences and the grand bargain if there is one must reflect that. the president has already begun to move beyond the beltway to enlist support meeting today with labor leaders from around the country who describe the talks as very, very positive. >> we're very, cre committed to making sure that the middle class and workers don't end up paying the tab for a party that we didn't get to go to and the president is committed to that as well. >> eliot: joining me now with more on the fiscal cliff negotiations is senator bernie sanders, independent from vermont. senator, many thanks for your time and congratula
developments coming just two hours away from president obama's first news conference since his re-election victory. a moment when an incumbent about to be sworn in for a second term would be expected to outline his goals and agenda but it's likely to be dominated by headlines surrounding two of the nation's highest ranking military general, petraeus and general john allen. let's refresh the details. general john allen is denying any and all allegations of an extramarital affair and any other wrongdoing. his nomination as commander of nato remains on hold but continues to lead in afghanistan. the white house expressing confidence in his ability to do so yesterday echoed by two members of the president's cabinet today. >> no one should leap to any conclusions. no one should leap to any conclusions here. general allen is doing an excellent job. >> general allen is a distinguished marine and commander who's been an important part of the nato isaf mission in afghanistan. >> and this morning nbc news is confirming a connection between general allen and jill kelley, the florida woman who kicked o
didn't know about the investigation until after the election. >> they have protocols in place for when they notify the executive branches of investigation. it's simply a fact that the white house was not aware of the:situation regarding general pea tray us until wednesday. >> reporter: the cia assistant director morrell will brief the committees today. martha: now that he's a civilian, doug, thank you. bill: he mentioned senator barrasso. he will be our guest in 10 minutes. we'll put the questions to him. cast of characters involved in the story. it can be confusing. top left now on screen, will be david petraeus. lawmakers on the hill want to know if national security was threatened by his cia chief's affair with paula broadwell, his biographer. bottom left. fit was broadwell investigators say sent harassing e-mails to jill kelley. she is bottom right. that womb and it was found was trading hundreds of e-mails with general john allen. pentagon officials say those e-mails may be inappropriate. the president and his defense chief sticking by allen whose nomination to lead nato forces is
, then this was a highly irregular process. going to jim clapper when the f.b.i. did on election day i don't quite understand that either. at this point, i feel strongly as dianne feinstein does that her committee has to right to understand what the process was, whether it complied with f.b.i. procedure. i think some pieces of this didn't. >> ifill: you mentioned... and to lenll the material. as i said before though, gwen, congress is typically not advised. i don't see why the intelligence committees would be advised. >> ifill: but you mentioned the election day notification, jane harman. are you worried at all that there may be the appearance of a political taint here? >> well, it was election day. i somehow think there may be the appearance of it. but i don't think that was anybody's intention. i think this was... i think congress should get to the bottom of it. if ere are investigations that involve the transfer of classified material, involving high-level officials or members of congress, absolutely. congress has to be briefed. and surely in a more timely way. congress shouldn't be playing cat
the election, small issues, we're going to begin to focus on big issues like the fiscal cliff but what happened in benghazi to take four americans' lives? that's important. a lot want to know about it and in the next coming days we'll be sitting on the edge of our seat waiting for the answer. >> people want to know about that but as we look at this, this cast of character that's merged from the petraeus situation including petraeus, general allen, jill kelley, paula broadwell, we are a war-weary nation but these men have overseen our troops, allen seeing 68,000 of our troops. there is a tipping point here where people are going to get angry to know what the back story is. >> i think so. i think ruth is also partly right when she says there's a sex scandal salaciousness that makes it appealing to the public and media but at the same time there are bigger issues. i think the fiscal cliff is an important issue that should come up at the press conference. this issue with benghazi, overly politicized by republicans during the campaign, now we can finally get real hard answers and talk about appointm
conference since being re-elected. he will meet the press at 1:0 this afternoon and probably should be prepared to answer some tough questions about general petraeus and allen and the fbi investigation as well as libya, not to mention the fiscal cliff and we're learning more about the woman who knew both general, tampa socialite jill kelley. a senior defense official says the e-mails between the two were more than just calling one another sweetheart, they were flirtatious and unprofessional. both of them wrote letters vouching for her sister in a child custody case and she made this phone call claiming she had some sort of diplomatic status which she does not. >> i am an honorary consul-general so i have unveilability so i should -- they should not be going across my property. but that's against the law to cross my mrort. um, it's involable. >> "the washington post" says there is a new focus on sensitive information in her possession. multiple u.s. officials have insisted to nbc news there was no security breach. let me bring in major garrett, white house reporter and tim carney for
back out, he thought. >> not what president obama wanted to talk about at his first post-election briefing but what is the first question about? >> about general petraeus, general allen and this entire context of what is happening in the senior military leadership. what was going on with jill kelley and what, if anything, it has to do with the underlying story of libya and the cia's involvement there. i mean there's more and more information, some of it opaque, some of it becoming a little more defined that it was the cia, not the state department, that had the lead role in either securing or being a part of whatever that consulate activity was in benghazi. now, maybe there are things the president cannot disclose at an open press conference but this testimony that general petraeus will give behind closed doors may be able to shed some light on libya, cia and what may have been some of the motives of those terrorists who attacked on 9/11. we'll find out. >> yeah, the big question about the fbi investigation, it seems to me, is the possibility did paula broadwell have classified do
house cover up. >> what? >> that's the crazy part. he knew earlier that on election day, but now it's the president asphalt--david ryker. >> stephanie: another republican part of the cover up. this gets curiouser and curiouser. >> he was concerned that the fbi officials would sweep the matter under the rug. so it was related to toll top congressional officials and we know that eric cantor was involved. now as they have started to investigate in broadwell-kelley e-mail. they discovered that john allen had been exchanging e-mails with jill kelley. i'm assuming she has sent some back. >> that's hard to do. >> stephanie: wait so--i got lost in the middle-- >> this is like the the elwood love chart. >> stephanie: how you know that reference, who is this guy. >> john allen is the top command center afghanistan. and he was sending e-mails back and forth with jill kelley. he was also based in tampa at some point or is based in tampa. she's the voluntary social planner. >> voluntary. >> stephanie: what sort of social things is she planning. >> she's a voluntary liaison. her husband is a big-
